LC Men’s Soccer End Regular Season With 2 Wins

Friday the Lynx played their last home game of the season against East Central College out Union Mo.  ECC is an outstanding team who will compete to win their win region tournament starting next week so we thought it would it be good test for us as we approach our region tournament starting next weekend.   Both teams had chances in the first half but it came out to be stalemate with a score of 0-0 at half time.   Lincoln controlled the ball most of the second half but in the 78th minute a long ball was misjudged by a Lincoln Defender and an ECC player was on a breakaway and chipped an out-coming Lincoln Goalie.  Lincoln would not let this change their momentum and continued to press towards ECC’s goal.   In the 82nd minute the Lynx were able to get on the board when Jose Barralaga dribbled by two players on the corner of the box and bent a ball around the goalkeeper.

Despite outshooting Northwest Tech, Lincoln was not able to find the back of the net.   They came into the game very prepared to play us.  They pressed hard, moved the ball well, and were very physical.

Lincoln College(5-2) men’s soccer lost a heated battle to a tough Lincoln Land (9-2) Tuesday by the final score of 3-2.   Lincoln started off strong scoring early when Jose Barralaga crossed a ball to Eddy Milien who received the ball and struck it past the Lincoln Land goalie.  Lincoln would keep the pressure on for the majority of the half getting several great chances before Ben Frogner found Jason Velasquez on top of the box who took a one time into the side netting.    Despite out shooting and having chance after chance Lincoln was unable to find another goal in the half.   Lincoln Land would get a cross into the box that was missed judged by the Lincoln defense and put away by Lincoln land.
